What Do You Think?

Snickety Snacks has a new look! What do you think?
If you're one of our awesome followers on this blog site, we'd love to have you jump over to the new one Here. While going through the rebranding process we were able to snag a blog address without the wonderful 'dash', and we also have a new website to match! You can check out that gorgeous project Here! Along with the new website look, soon you'll be able to order some of our more frequently ordered cookies on there, making it easy to get sweet treats for those fun events in your life!

We're really proud of our new look and hope you like it too!

School Is Sweet!

I know most kids are already back in school, so these treats might seem a bit late, but my little Monkey starts kindergarten next week so we're considering these right on time!
We had a super cute order recently for a teacher looking to surprise her class with a little cookie happiness, and we decided to run with the chevron apple design she chose...
Those Cake Pops are super cute covered in glittery sanding sugar!
Who wouldn't love an outstanding edible grade?
Our Cakes make every day better!

Happy New School Year!

Concert Cookies, Oh Yeah!

Do you remember that kind of amazing Fall Out Boy Sugar Cookie we made a little while back? Well Brittanie is hooked on making more...and more...and oh yes, even more. Our latest round?
 Say Hello to the Plain White T's and The Wind + The Wave!

Let's start with The Wind + The Wave. Never heard of them?  
Patty and Dwight are my new favorite people. Incredible musicians, fantastic songs, and two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet. 
After seeing the Cookie from us they totally knocked our socks off. Dwight came to talk to my husband and I before they performed, they both did a shoutout for Snickety Snacks during their stage time, and I can't count the hugs I got from Patty while they autographed their album for us.
One of the coolest things about these two? They signed the Cookie!
(With an edible ink marker of course.)
Fingers crossed for a 2014 Tour!

Now who hasn't had a Plain White T's song stuck in their head at one point? 'Hey There Delilah', '1,2,3,4', or my personal favorite 'Hate' are just a few of the favorites, but I've got to say, 
their Wonders of The Younger album is definitely my favorite. The circus-type vibe to some of the songs on there are right up my alley(Check our Cirque Dans La Rue), and the album art is gorgeous!
 Cliff Cramp is the creative genius behind the artwork, and we could resist getting the cover on a big ol' Sugar Cookie! Wendy's painting technique really brought this to life, no way we could have made it happen without her shading talents!
 We see this becoming a regular occurrence for us, creating these Concert Cookies, and we're excited to show you the tasty results! Follow us on Instagram @snicketysnacks and to see these babies specifically, be on the lookout for #concertcookie !

So what do you think? Who's album art should we take on next?

Sweet Circus

Before we even had our recent Wild Thing set completed we were searching through Nikki's illustrated sets on Etsy again for our next fun project. It didn't take long to find one we couldn't resist!
 {These are from Nikki's Circus bundle-fantastic colors and we love all the details!}
 {These were some of our favorites in the bunch!}
We're hoping to cookie-fy more of Nikki's illustrations in the future! Which ones are your favorites? We'd love suggestions!

You can find more amazing illustrations from Nikki on her blog Here.

Dressed Like A Wild Thing

Any chance you remember our Zombie Love project from a little while back? Or our experience with a Yellow Submarine? Well we've done something similar, and as expected, we're loving the Wild results.

Wendy found an incredible artist on Pinterest(we love them!), and her name is Nikki. This brilliant woman is our new best friend and a very happy source of inspiration for us. Sometimes things just work out beautifully.
 {See what I mean! Wanna see a bit closer?}
 {Aren't they so completely adorable?!}
 These adorable illustrations are from Nikki's 'Dressed Like A Wild Thing' bundle on Etsy, and you should seriously jump over there and snag it now. She's also brilliant in that she gives an instant download once you pay for a bundle-no waiting around for the shop owner to get back to you with your goodies!
 {That little grey boy off to the right is Brittanie's fav-Wendy loved all the toes!}
Nikki's detail on these really makes them stand out, even down to the tiny little dotting on every character. If you think these babies are cute, you should definitely sneak a peak at her Etsy shop. We've gone through all of her pages and can't wait to get more of her sweet images on our Sugar Cookies!

As if her shop wasn't enough, she maintains multiple blogs with a variety of themes-check out the options HERE.
{Nikki gave us her permission to use her images and we were happy to pay for them!}

Save Rock and Roll!

Here's a quick little story about a girl's love for a certain band, and the crazy adventure
she convinced her Mom to help with...
Brittanie kind of loves Fall Out Boy. With a passion. Her amazing husband surprised her with tickets to see them in May in DC, and in anticipation of said event, Brittanie decided to go a bit crazy with Sugar Cookies.
One specific Cookie actually. This one. 
This baby is roughly 11" by 16" and is kind of incredible to us, and totally edible for them. It was inspired
by Fall Out Boy's poster for the Save Rock and Roll arena tour later this year.
It was accompanied by a second gigantic cookie with the band's logo on it, and given to the club to avoid it going to waste. Miraculously it was passed on to the band's tour manager, who then handed it off to the band and crew.
I think they liked it. A lot. 
Joe, one of FOB's guitarists, Instagram'ed this and had Brittanie jumping up and down like a lunatic in the middle of Target hours before the performance. And it only got better minutes before the concert started.
 Hello Pete! Cue to Brittanie jumping up and down yet again. 19+ thousand 'Likes' on Instagram and a whole bunch of fantastic comments later and we are still thrilled with the response from friends and strangers. 

I'm seeing more gigantic concert cookies in our near future. Most definitely.

Want to see the fun projects and orders we're working on? Instagram it up!
